The name of the company was inspired by the first home of Steamworks Brewery back when it was only a small bar. At the back of the location, there was a steamer that had been abandoned by the previous ones. The place was not as expensive as Mr. Eli Gershkovitch had anticipated, but his resources were too low for him to afford a brand new set of equipment. Luckily for him, the old steamer was still very much intact. It was functioning well, and it was the first tool that Mr. Eli Gershkovitch used to put a start to his career, hence the name of his business.
Mr. Eli Gershkovitch has a unique view of his business. He believes that craft beer is craft beer until the people making it start viewing it a way to get money. For Mr. Eli Gershkovitch that is the point when craft beer turns into corporate beer. He has stated many times that his goal is to enhance craft beer brewery in Canada and to stay away from becoming corporate.
Mr. Eli Gershkovitch is the type of person to enjoy every single step of the way. He had loved each stage of his business including back when Steamworks Brewery was a small bar.

Jorge is the owner of Brazil’s largest medical facility and is already making plans to add more technology-driven solutions the health institute he runs. One such technology is the Google Glass.
Both Chan and Jorge Moll believe that the use of Google Glass will transform the experience for both doctors and patients. One feature of the Google Glass technology is the ability to provide the doctor with all the information about the patient using a single voice command. The technology will provide efficiency within the medical industry while at the same time creating a more personalized experience for the patient. The ability of the doctor to solely focus on the patient during the checkups, thanks to the Google Glass technology will aid in personalizing and improving the patient’s experience.
